Crock Pot Lazy Lasagna

My kids love lasagna but I don’t always have the time to make or bake it. This Crock Pot Lazy Lasagna is a quick and easy recipe that I can throw in the crock pot in the morning and know that dinner will be ready to serve when we arrive home that evening.

My kids enjoy this meal so we’ve made it multiple times. It is not my favorite so I make sure that I have a salad on hand or some steamable veggies to serve alongside this meal. Garlic bread is also an addition that we frequently make. A few minutes in the air fryer and the cheesy garlic bread is ready to serve.

My crock pot is a lifesaver. Even on those days when I can’t possibly find the time to make dinner, I can usually set my alarm for a little earlier to put together a crock pot meal in the morning. For this recipe, the prep is about 10 minutes and it only requires a 4 hour cook time. If you’re looking to invest in a new crockpot, be sure to get one with a digital timer. This prevents your food from overcooking but still keeps it warm so it is ready to eat when you arrive home from work.
